The Cedars, 1A and 3 New Road, North Walsham: Historic Building Report

Author(s): Emily Cole, James Shemmonds

This report focuses on The Cedars, a house constructed in the late 18th century and enlarged and altered in the 1860s/’70s and to a more minimal degree in the 20th century. The building, located just off North Walsham’s Market Place, was a private residence for most of its history, before becoming the offices of the local council following the close of the Second World War. It was listed Grade II in 1972 and continued in use as council offices until 2016, when the council moved out and the property was left vacant. The Cedars is now being refurbished as part of the £3.2 million High Street Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ) scheme, led by North Norfolk District Council and supported by Historic England and the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership. The building is a key component of the HSHAZ, and there are plans to offer the premises to let as well as plans for reuse of the outbuildings on the adjacent plot. This report aims to inform ongoing works on the site as well as plans for its future.
